Photo of Old Town Burying Ground
This cemetery, known as "Town Cemetery" was on ground belonging to the township of Hempstead and consequently was greatly neglected. The ground was finally given into the charge of the Village Trustees and they had the place carefully surveyed by Thomas V. Smith, so as to locate each grave, and a copy of each inscription filed with the Village Clerk and the stones put under ground and a park made of the space. This Park lies next east of the Presbyterian Church. The stones were covered in 1897.
